While things have been radio silent regarding Roller Champions since the end of the game's closed beta last February, Ubisoft has quietly delayed its free-to-play roller skating ball game thing, with a ‘late spring 2022’ window now mooted.
News regarding the delay hasn't been announced via Ubisoft's usual channels, including social media, but rather, the information comes via the Roller Champions Discord server, as spotted by Tom Henderson.
“After evaluating every possible scenario, the team has concluded that they will need a bit more time to deliver the successful game you deserve,” the announcement reads. “We believe it’s the right decision to properly honour your excitement (and our own!) for the game and the competitive scene you’ve started around our Beta.”
Pitting two teams of three rollerblading competitors against one another in an arena, Roller Champions has you going head-to-head to score the most goals, while whizzing along a track. The game was confirmed for Xbox in March 2020, before being given an ‘Early 2021’ release window, which obviously didn't come to pass.
Now, following this latest announcement, Roller Champions is scheduled to release in “late spring” 2022. No doubt a more concrete release date will be confirmed in the near future.
